Sunday Sleep In ~ “World Changes” ~ Giovanni Mirabassi Trio.

Giovanni Mirabassi

 

This native Italian self taught pianist and composer at 17 got an out of a blue invitation to play with jazz legend Chet Baker in 1987 when Baker did a gig in Giovanni’s birthplace Perugia. How sweet was that.

Then he started composing his own music and got his own group together playing. By 19 he was touring Italy with Steve Grossman.

He learned by listening to the likes of all the masters, notably Art Tatum and Bud Powell among others. But in 1992 he would take his actual first piano lessons from Aldo Ciccolini, the teaching would be three years in Paris. Fellow Italian pianist Enrico Pieranunzi would also become a main inspiration.

In 1996 he would produce his first album and he never looked back. To date he has put out almost 25, his last release in 2014.

This particular trio you’re hearing would perform together from 2007 through 2010. On the albums they would be apart of each made their own magic making the compositions come alive and jump out at you as if you were seeing a black light poster only you hear the visions.
